Open Research Data is a key policy topic for Horizon 2020. EGI user communities will need access to services that allow them to store and publish their data in order to comply with this policy. The goal of this group is to understand the requirements that derive from this policy, identify possible technologies and services that are common to the various user communities and develop a use case driven prototype for federated open data repositories. Business models will also be investigated. The goal is to offer a generic services that EGI user communities can access in order to comply with the H2020 guidelines on data management, and making them possible for third parties to access, mine, exploit, reproduce and disseminate.


The expected output of this project is:

  • A set of requirements for a federated open research data repository that comply with the H2020 data management policy
  • An analysis of possible technical solutions
  • An evaluation of a pilot service with recommendations
  • A business model including a pricing scheme
